In this asana the body is stretched more like a string of bow when pulled at the time of archery.
While trying to raise the foot up to ear, one tends to bend neck. But this is wrong, initially it may be difficult but it does not matter. Only care should be taken to keep the neck and trunk straight. Try to pull up the foot as much as possible.
This asana exerts great strain and one can't maintain it for long but with practice one can maintain it for up to 30 seconds.
In this asana great strain is exerted on hand, legs and joints of waist and the knees. Consequently the efficiency of the organs increases.
One should avoid the temptation of attaining the ideal position if strain is unbearable.
